FREEDOM OF INFORMATION: "Jihad Brides"

The following Freedom of Information request has been sent to the Home Office and the Attorney General's Office:

Dear Sir/Madam,
re: Freedom of Information Request
In recent weeks, the press have reported on "scores" of women holding British citizenship travelling to the Middle Meast, to marry fighters for groups such as ISIS.
One of them posted a picture on Twitter of her toddler holding a Kalashnikov, describing him as "my mini mujahid".  According to the Daily Mail, the father is a Swedish-born ISIS fighter: http://www.dailymail.co.uk/news/article-2699084/Pictured-Smiling-British-toddler-posing-assault-rifle-tweet-sent-Jihadist-mother-quit-London-Syria-ISIS-fighter-husband.html
I would like to know the following:
1.  Will such women be free to return to the United Kingdom whenever they please, without penalty?
2.  Will children born abroad to "jihad brides" be able to settle in the United Kingdom/become eligible for British citizenship?
3.  Will foreign spouses of "jihad brides" be able to settle in the United Kingdom/become eligible for British citzenship through the various "family (re)unification" channels, or similar?
4.  Will the authorities be unable to prevent entry into the United Kingdom of foreign jihadists such as the one mentioned in the above Daily Mail article, by virtue of their having EU/EEA citzenship?
5.  Will the authorities be unable to deport the children and/or partners of "jihad brides" who do travel to the United Kingdom, owing to the "Right to a Family Life" and related legal provisions?

Yours faithfully,

  etc.
